In “Natural Selection,” Peter Parker and Spider-Man both must learn to own their choices when decisions made by Dr. Curt Connors transform Pete’s mentor into The Lizard.
I watched the premire episodes last week with my son. I was really suprised actually pretty impressed at how well the characters were being developed. It’s not your run of the mill/villian of the week cartoon show. My son had a great time watching too; which means it has enough story and plot for us older kids and keeps the little ones entertained as well. Winning formula guys! A++.
